Not a Fred Allen fan, his voice is also ANNOYING!!!
I hated Howdy Doody when I was a kid.
Howdy Doody was way before my time, but I find marionette's so disconcerting with their bouncing around lol
I never cared for Fred Allen, but in this first appearance, he was funny
I met Bob Smith in 1974 in Santa Ann El Salvador when he was riding a brand new motorcycle from the US to Argentina.
My father was a U.S. Air Force officer in the 1950s and 60s. It was known that when Major James flew, as he lifted the plane off the ground, he would announce to the control tower, "The jig is up."
The more I watch these reruns, the more I appreciate Fred Allen, who died before I really can remember him on the show.
WOW!! Chappie James, major during that taping but became a 4 star general

Whether Fred Allen stood up for Buffalo Bob or not,his unique wit was a great addition to this classic show. The only other panelist as funny as Fred had to be Groucho,although his appearances were few.
I was wondering if Howdy Doody would show up. So glad ! My preschool years were entertained by him ,😍
Aaahhh. .. these wonderful folks Really Loved and had such a good time with each other... When Mr. Allen and Ms Kilgalon died, their grief, shock and Love showed. ...all are gone now.... What a wonderful show. Bless you All, my Dear long past friends.
The panel pitched a shutout in this episode; they guessed every line. Rare.
Intelligent and Entertaining
Compared to today's offerings
Dorothy Kilgallen is super!!!!
Skirt blowing machine?
Dorothy pulled that bill collecting out very well
Arlene cannot stop laughing at Fred Allen being Steve Allen's son. She was so tickled and cute
